Erica Hawley competed in the Semi-Final 1 Elite Women’s race finishing 12th with a time of 1:01:50, to miss out on advancing.
Hawley clocked 10:00 on the Swim, 32:28 on the Bike Course and 17:41 on the Run Course.
Australia’s Emma Jeffcoat who set the pace from the off in the Semi-Final 1 Elite Women’s race. Leading all the way from the first strokes of the first swim, Jeffcoat set the fastest time of all three Women’s Semis to win in 59:07, ahead of home favorite Zsofia Kovacs, who will be desperately keen for a first Tiszy podium finish, and Germany’s Anabel Knoll.
